    Truth be told, you conservatives only want facts that sway in your direction, thus making it impossible for people to get through to you. But I'll be danged if you can't do research and look up facts. You proved to us all (just now) that you have that ability to do so and choose not to when it so benefits you. And here we thought you were just stupid. It's not that you can't look up facts, it's that you refuse to. The very definition of bias.
    You don't know me. I could say "you Liberals" do this and do that but I don't. There are liberals that I agree with on some points and will argue their point. There are some Conservatives that I think aren't as smart as the law allows and will argue against them. I am not going to pigeon hole anyone into a statement as stupid as "You Liberals". I am not lockstep with the conservatives. I always do my research. I think for myself. Check my posts.

    As for this conversation, well, I think it is over. You don't have a genuine bone in your body or an honest thought in your head.

    People have already noticed the total flop in office at this moment.

    If you don't judge candidates on their history and performance then Obama is what you get.

    Everything You Need to Know* About Rick Perry's Newest Scandal - The Texas Observer

    Yeah, OK. So another Democratic party machine action against a Republican just like Delay, i.e. nothing to it, but the damage will be done anyhow, which seems to be the point and purpose of this indictment. So typical. Just watch what the media will do with this, 'cause they don't like Republicans or conservatives either, and would rather see, and have a hand in, their political careers destroyed.
    Yes, republicans are innocent until proven guilty and democrats (and the media) are guilty without even being charged

    Perry dug himself into this hole with his own tactics.

    I only hope that he gets what he deserves - which is some time in the slammer.

    He'll look good in a striped jump-suit.

    You don't charge a sitting Governor on such flimsy speculation. If the DA had an ounce of integrity, she would have resigned, but considering her actions during her arrest and detention, it's clear she has an inflated sense of ownership and entitlement. I doubt Governor Perry was the only one in Texas who thought she should go. Why can't it simply be that he wanted to take out the trash and see new leadership in that office?

    Bottom line, however, is that government leaders use the power of the purse to get things done - always have, always will. Better line them all up and start the parade to the courts.

    And we have someone who already convicted Perry, without so much as all of the facts.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    I suppose that part of it is the frustration that the Biased Lame Stream Media (BLSM) has no problem calling Republicans on it on the front page, but somehow, the editorial decision is to put the Democratic corruption scandals on the back page. Just admit it. This really IS going on.
    Back page? I seem to remember a Democratic president getting impeached that wasn't put on the back pages. Or the governor of Illinois.

    "Lame Stream Media"? You're better than Sarah Palin one-liners.
